The El Monte-Rosemead Adult School administers the General Educational Development (GED) and the High School Equivalency Test (HiSET).
The following are the requirements to register for the official test:
- Must be 18 years old at the time of application
- Must be a resident of California
- Must have DMV identification
(Social Security number recommended, but not required)
- Must not have any other high school diploma, certificate, or be attending a regular high school
The counseling staff recommends students to take the GED Ready practice test before registering for the official test. The practice test can be taken in our lab for $4.50 per section or online at home for $6.00 per section. The HiSET practice test may also be taken online at www.hiset.ets.org.
Upon completion of the practice test, the counseling staff can recommend individualized courses of study for each student. Students interested in the practice or official examination can see a counselor to obtain more information. To register for the official tests, students must create a profile online at www.ged.com or www.hiset.ets.org. After registering, students can select available testing dates, times, and locations.
The El Monte-Rosemead Adult School can provide assistance and guidance during the registration process. The fee for either tests is $140.00. Sections can be taken on different dates and/or testing locations. Both practice and official tests are computer based.
